7th Siesta Key Crystal Classic returning November 11-15

This November 11th-15th, twenty-four of the world’s preeminent master sand sculptors will be competing in the Siesta Key Crystal Classic. Now in its 7th year, this popular visual and cultural arts festival has hosted over 200,000 attendees on our #1 beach!joye image4.jpg

In only 24 sculpting hours, (spanning the five-day event), the master sculptors will create sand masterpieces, some over ten feet tall, and transform the always beautiful Siesta Beach into an outdoor art gallery. These renowned artists will produce spectacular, ephemeral works of art from just sand and water.

And it’s more than just sand…the festival also features live music all weekend, a large shopping village, and a variety of food and drink vendors. Other activities include the popular three-day “Quick Sand” speed sculpting competition, sand sculpting lessons, an amateur competition, and new this year – The Learning Curve – an educational and fun activity area for kids.

Parking will be easy for guests who chose the off-site shuttle service offered through SCAT, routes 10 & 11. A Mobi-Mat on the sand for easier walking on Tuesday, Nov. 15th.
